A person was critically injured in a Monday afternoon shooting in Little Rock, requiring a tactical team's deployment to a home south of Interstate 630.
Authorities said the shooting happened around 2:45 p.m. near the intersection of West 10th and Abigail streets.
Several people police believed were involved in the shooting ran into a nearby home and holed up as a police SWAT team scrambled officers and sent negotiators to the residential neighborhood, police spokesman Eric Barnes said.
Officers found a person in their 20s with an apparent gunshot wound to the leg. Barnes said the person was in critical condition at the hospital.
No other injuries were immediately reported, he said
Barnes said police convinced four people to come out of the home.
Police believed that another person remained inside the home an hour after the initial shooting call, Barnes said, but when SWAT officers searched the home, they did not find anyone.
Barnes said either there was not a person remaining in the home, or the person fled the home. Detectives will interview the four people who exited the home initially to determine if there was a remaining person.
Police said there was no further danger to the public.
Details about what led to the shooting weren't immediately available.
